I Finally Made ................

the black walnut cake I was planning to make last year , this year for Christmas. About two weeks before Christmas I was in the basement looking for something when I spotted the box of black walnuts I had picked up last year. So I decided to check them and see if they were still good. I laid one in between a towel and hit it with a hammer , they were easy to crack since they were so dried out. The nut inside was just fine , so I cracked them and picked out the nuts.
Christmas Eve I made a black walnut pound cake with cream cheese icing , it was delicious but dangerous (LOL) due to some hull in the cake. Fortunately no one broke a tooth and we had a good laugh , but I'll be more careful with picking the nut out next time.

~ Many Blessings ~
